Some Clarity of Vision


Some Clarity of Vision was a 2015 solo exhibition at Gallery MOMO in Johannesburg, South Africa. New paintings during a two-month residency drew on research into the country’s history, with everyday life interpreted through black heroines and religious iconography. Key works included ‘For Moses Had Married An Ethiopian Woman—Numbers 12:1', a life-sized double portrait in which the biblical, black wife of the prophet seems to anticipate happily her impending Exodus to the promised land—while the site of the infamous Marikana mine massacre is visible on the horizon beyond.
